Skinners Mill and Cottage
-7 AUG 1989
- II
Former mill and mill house, now two cottages. C15 or earlier origins,
substantial alterations and extensions in C19 and C20. Coursed, squared dressed
limestone, but ashlar in C19 wing, stone slate roof. A complex plan, with
hall-house centre; to right (south) of this a C19 block at right angles, and to
the left or stream side a mill building and an L-plan domestic block, with
through-way. Entrance front in four sections. From the left: single storey
with 2-light recessed chamfer mullion casement with hood, and chamfered surround
doorway under gabled canopy on brackets; 2-storey, 2-window with two 2-light
recessed chamfer mullions under continuous hood mould interrupted by late C20
gabled porch and door, beneath two 3-light C20 recessed chamfer mullion case-
ments with hood moulds, and, far right, a segmental-pointed opening to through-
out. Ashlar stack with capping to left gable; small early section with 4-light
Perpendicular window beneath a 2-light small-pane casement dormer and a large
stone stack backing on to through passage; at right angles to the last, high
2-storey C19 block with two over 3-light mullioned casement with hood moulds,
and, in internal angle, a good 6-panel door. Plain gables with yellow brick
stacks. Back has lean-to conservatory under three 2-light chamfer mullion case-
ments and two 3-light gabled dormers. Back of range, from left: plain gable to
C19 building; single light to early block; opening to through-way with arch hood
at across at the top; deep projecting one storey wing; low wing with brick gable
towards Painswick stream, and a basement accessible from the ground at lower
level. Interior not fully inspected, but low centre building has crock-like
construction to the dormer light and an arch-braced truss with wind bracing; at
ground floor is a very deep spine beam with chamfers to run-out stops. This is
an interesting a agglomeration.
